In regions with warmer climates, like Central Florida, native snakes often like to reside in residential backyards or underneath porches. While they may assist properties by feeding on small rodents and other vermin, snakes can still be extremely dangerous to have on your property. That is because some species of snake can release toxic venom. Therefore, you should resist the temptation to take care of your snake problem on your own. For your own safety, it is highly recommended that you instead rely on wildlife removal professionals to keep snakes out of your yard.
Non-Venomous vs. Venomous Snakes in Central Florida
Snakes can be hard to identify as they will quickly swivel and slither away when approached. Whether the species of snake in your yard is venomous or not, all snakes are unpredictable, easily startled, and can use their fangs to defend themselves. Therefore, to avoid a potentially life threatening situation, you should never attempt to pick up a wild snake. The most common snakes in Central Florida include:
- Water snakes
- Rat snakes
- Black racer
- Garter snake
- Coral snake
- Diamondback rattlesnake
What Attracts Snakes to Your Yard?
Hiding spots and available food sources like rodents, pests, and insects are commonly what attracts snakes to residential properties. Exterior trash, holes, and overgrowth also make for great homes that snakes and other nuisance animals will flock to; therefore, cleaning up and removing such debris can keep snakes away. If you’ve seen snakes hanging around your yard, then you may want to entertain the idea that you may also have a rodent or pest problem. If so, then inspecting your home for warning signs could determine if professional wildlife removal is needed for both snake and rodent control.
